Scare Beast is a Hunter ability that causes a beast to run in fear for up to 20 seconds.

Tips and tactics

  • This can be used as crowd control when fighting multiple mobs and one happens to be a beast.
  • This skill works on druids when they are in Bear form or Cat form, and shamans in [Ghost Wolf] form.
  • As with all Fear effects, Scare Beast should be used carefully. Scared beasts can easily wander into range of other mobs, aggroing them and causing them to attack the hunter.
  • Scare Beast can be used to allow time for the hunter to bandage, or to gain distance before recommencing their attack.
  •  [Glyph of Scare Beast] (minor) reduces pushback from damaging attacks while casting Scare Beast by 75%.
